I’m thirty six years old.
I have three children that I haven’t manged to lose or have taken away from me. I can put food on the table on a regular basis. I take care of dogs and cats and chickens and ducks and geese and pigs and bees and a dove and they all seem content with my care. I can do the laundry and build tables. I can write blogs and repair minor electrical issues. I can shoot a shotgun and cut up the hindquarter of a deer. I can do a handstand, race a canoe and grow my own vegetables.
I am in many regards a totally successful adult.
So why, why, can I not remember to buy toilet paper on a regular basis?
Why are we always making an emergency toilet paper run?
Why do I do things like beg my friends for a roll of toilet paper so it doesn’t have to be an emergency and then forget it ?
Why have I done that exact same thing twice this year?
And why, why is it that it takes a half a roll of toilet paper in a house with four girls before I realize that we are out.
Come on all you lovely readers, it can’t be just me! Make me feel better, what’s the one thing you always forget?
